Hello there! I am an associate professor in the Research Methods and Statistics Program at the Morgridge College of Education at the University of Denver.
I teach courses in intermediate & advanced statistics, survey design, and research methods.
With my past experiences in both applied statistics and child development, I have been actively involved in research studies funded at different levels in early development and children’s psychological well-beings. I am also a big fan of adopting instructional technology in statistics education
My research interests are focused on two areas: first, methodological area in multilevel modeling using Structural Equation Modeling and Hierarchical Linear Modeling, and my substantive area is in parenting practice and school readiness in early childhood.
